EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Jamie Craighead scored 20 points and Lindsey Dion and Angelina Wolvert each added 18 apiece as Oregon defeated Arizona 83-78 Saturday.

Reshea Bristol had 23 points and 10 assists for the Wildcats (18-10, 8-8) and Elizabeth Pickney added 16 points.

Craighead was six of 15 from the 3-point line, giving her the Oregon single-season record with 75.
